Firstly, some BIG NEWS: No, I'm not pregnant, but instead I'm going back to school! The idea of being a student again has been in the back of my mind for over a year, but I finally bit the proverbial bullet and applied. My classes start this week and I will be studying Information Science to one day be a librarian! Everyone around here must know how much I like reading, so this seems like a perfect fit for me. I'm a bit intimidated, since it's been close to a decade since I was in school, but from the orientation last week, I think I'm going to like it.
Fertility update (seeing as I've posted on this earlier in the year): Nothing to say here. As you may have gathered from some of my posts in the spring, this year has been very difficult for me, and I have no cheery news to share now. To be brutally honest, I have never before felt so isolated and hopeless as I did these past few months, which is probably why I've had no real desire to plaster my thoughts up on the Internet.
Family update: I have a new niece! Eve Audrey was born last week, a little sister for Ezra. Our family is growing a lot, seeing as my step-brother and his wife had baby Luke last March.
Husband update: Gil is fine. We had a quiet summer and mostly stuck close to home. Even though this year has been trying, I'm still loving life with my husband, and I couldn't have made it through the last few months without Gil (and also the World cup, but mostly Gil, haha).
Mandarin update: Stunted. Like I said, this summer has been sad and emotionally draining, and eventually I decided I just needed to cut things out of my life that were stressing me out. I hope one day to resume my classes, but for now I will be busy enough with school.
Cat update: Still cute! Thank goodness for adorable fur babies when the going gets tough.
